Insurance provides needed help as J.P. grows

J.P. grows

It’s been a busy year, and I’m having a hard time believing it’s already nearing its end. I like to think I thrive in a busy environment, but recently, I’ve frequently felt like I’m struggling just to get the absolutely essential things done. J.P.… Continue Reading “Insurance provides needed help as J.P. grows”

Pushing for family-centered hospital care

Tallahassee trip

Anyone who knows me will tell you I’m passionate about two things in life: My family and the care my son receives at Florida Hospital for Children in Orlando. We spend a great deal of time at the hospital — both inpatient and outpatient… Continue Reading “Pushing for family-centered hospital care”

Everything under the sun

Sun

J.P., Paige and I have had a busy year, and things don’t seem to be calming down. But several people have asked how things are going and whether I’ve stopped blogging. There are still plenty of stories to tell, and I’m hoping to break… Continue Reading “Everything under the sun”

Rocks and hard places

J.P. gets ready for bed

The past few months have been a roller coaster when it comes to J.P.’s health. Shortly after Thanksgiving, J.P. started to have issues where he sounds congested and eventually vomits. For Paige and I, it seemed very similar to what happened while we were… Continue Reading “Rocks and hard places”

The talented Mr. Royalty

J.P. and Uncle Freddie

Earlier this month, I posted about Paige’s back problems and inability to lift J.P. for the past few weeks. Unfortunately, the problem caught us a bit off-guard. We have no lift in the house for J.P., and we have no nursing help or aide… Continue Reading “The talented Mr. Royalty”
